Sweet Potato, Date and Cinnamon Loaf
by: Vicky Reihana on
It has been a while since I have been inspired by a new recipe… that may have something to do with not having a kitchen to work in for the past few months and moving house a few times!
My inspiration for this recipe came by chance and luck! We struck gold with a builder who has transformed our new home from an old shed into a work of genius! How does this relate to a recipe you ask? His partner just so happens to be a chef, photographer, food stylist all rolled into one! Cheryl has an ultra stylish blog called “The Krooked Spoon” Its full of delicious healthy, whole food, gluten free recipes styled elegantly to perfection.
I took inspiration from Cheryl’s “Sweet Potato, Date and Hazelnut Loaf” recipe. We made a few changes to the ingredients incorporating our Cinnamon Protein Blend and omitting the hazelnuts. I dare not to forget to mention my mum is visiting and baked it for me. She is the bomb when it comes to baking!
- Gluten Free

1 cup Sweet potato steamed and mashed
1 cup Buckwheat Flour
1 cup Almond Meal
1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut (no sulphates)
1/2 cup Rapadura Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Bicarb Soda
1/2 cup chopped Mejool Dates (pitted)
1 tsp Cinnamon
4 free range eggs
1/2 cup oil (we used Macadamia and coconut oil mixed together)
3/4 cup coconut water or milk
Topped with Shredded Coconut
Pre-heated to 140C (Fan forced)
Line loaf tin with baking paper.
In a bowl combine Cinnamon Protein, buckwheat flour, almond meal, desiccated coconut, rapdura sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and chopped dates.
In a separate bowl whisk together eggs, oil, coconut water or coconut milk. Add sweet potato mash and dry ingredients – stir until fully combined.
Pour ingredients into loaf tin.
Bake for 1 and a half hours or until skewer comes out clean.
When cooled, slice. I love to spread creamy organic grass fed butter on top. Yum!
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Alternatively slice , wrap and freeze. This loaf is a great snack or breakfast alternative.
